    I'm working on a pilot logbook in Excel.

    Right now I have some columns with data that I would like to manipulate.

    For example Column C contains registrations.

    What I would like to do is go through the column, extracting unique registrations, and putting them in their own column.

    I would then count the number of flights per plane.

    i.e.
    Column C contains the following: FILQ, FQHT, FQHT, FIMM, FILQ

    I want to create a column with only: FILQ, FIMM, FQHT

    Is there a way to do this? Preferably as a forumla and not a macro.

    Thanks

    Try Advanced Filter. Go to Data, Filter, Advanced Filter. Choose "Unique records only", and "Copy to" (the last to move to a new column).
